Preferred Hours of Work and Corresponding Earnings.
Shank, Susan E.
Monthly Labor Review, v109 n11 p40-44 Nov 1986
The author examines the data on workweek preferences and finds only moderate support for the hypothesis underlying the "backward bending labor supply curve," according to which an increase in rates of pay past a certain point induces workers to reduce their hours of work. (CT)
